Where do our vegetables go? Our cherry tomatoes, green beans and other vegetables that aren’t popped directly into the mouths of garden volunteers? To date, with the help of Berkshire Food Net (http://co-act.org/category/food-net/), our vegetables are delivered to the First United Methodist Church, Christian Center, St Stephens, First Baptist Church, First Congregational, Lenox United Methodist Church, Barton’s Crossing, WIC, Salvation Army, and Lanesboro VFW.
According Paul Deslauriers of the Berkshire Food Net, an organization that channels fresh food to sites throughout the Berkshires, “The Food Net delivers up to 900 lbs of produce a week, so I see lots of vegetables. The Westside Farm Project is the most consistent high yield producer in the Food Net. The quality and variety of produce from their project is outstanding, and the cooks love the quality.”
We care deeply about what we grow, and about the people who eat what we grow. We are always looking for community meal sites and pantries in and around the Westside in need of fresh food, so please contact us if you are aware of sites that could use an infusion of delicious vegetables!
